Sunrise over South Downs

Recommended campsites for West Sussex

Posted on: Wednesday 16th of December 2015

From the coastal resorts of Wittering and Bognor to the medieval towns of Chichester and Arundel, West Sussex has plenty of campsites where you can park your motorhome. Here’s the Landcruise Motorhome Hire review of the campsites we recommend. Firstly there are 3 very good Camping & Caravanning Club sites close to us. Tell them you are booking with LandCruise Motorhome Hire and they will give you discount off a pitch for the night.

Chichester Camping & Caravanning Club Site, on the A259 near Southbourne, PO10 8JH

www.campingandcaravanningclub.co.uk
Visit the lovely Cathedral town of Chichester on your first or last night. This is a small campsite set in an orchard just 6 miles from the town centre and close to Chichester harbour. There is a convenient bus stop just outside the gates.

Graffham Camping & Caravanning Club Site, near Petworth, GU28 0QF

www.campingandcaravanningclub.co.uk
In the heart of the South Downs is this peaceful 20 acre wooded site. The pitches are surrounded by trees and, in the spring, there is a carpet of bluebells around the Site. Rabbits, squirrels, foxes and if you are lucky badgers can all be seen regularly scurrying past your motorhome. Walkers and cyclists can follow the South Downs Way, but the highlight of this area is the food and drink at the local Foresters Arms.

Slindon Camping & Caravan Club Site, just off the A27 near Arundel, BN18 0RG

The other good Camping and Caravanning Site near LandCruise Motorhome Hire is next to the Slindon National Trust Estate. Part of the attraction of this site is its peaceful nature, partly due to its minimal facilities. If you would prefer a toilet or shower block you would be better to stay at the Graffham site.
